More About the Author
Please visit my website: www.sylviawhitmanbooks.com
I write ... all kinds of things, for kids and adults, but most recently books for kids. I'm interested in American and Arab history and good stories. My first YA novel, The Milk of Birds, is being published by Atheneum in spring 2013.
I work ... at Marymount University as a writing specialist, which makes me the campus cheerleader for writing. I talk a lot with faculty and sometimes I teach. I've taught freshman seminars on learning about the Middle East and North Africa and on writing about cooking and eating.
I live ... in Arlington, Virginia, with my family.
I play ... with my kids, and a little basketball. I miss playing squash. I walk a lot and swim.
I like ... (in no particular order) the ocean, couscous, dogs, flowers from bulbs, photographs.
